Re: Darlington v Brackley Town

Interesting you think our board had no say in this. I know Gray is everyone's favourite bogeyman right now, but I'd be staggered if our board had no say in handing out the two year deals. Very true, though I'd wager they had Gray extolling their virtues and the board would likely defer to him when ...

Apart from the deal was agreed 4 weeks before that injury
It was? My bad.

Obviously Almond, Parkin, Morgan-Smith, Rankine and Gray aren't enough.

Back in York seeing mates for the first time since the move away and so ended up watching this. Fuck me, York are shite.

Thought that myself but wonder if MG wants one of Parkin ( unlikely on his wages ) or Rankine out of the door? The only rationale I can see is that Rankine is currently out as something abnormal was found in a routine heart scan. Blood pressure related or something. If this was to keep him from pla...

Re: Mark Beck

Still don't understand why Gray is so intent on getting Beck. It's not a reflection on Beck's ability, but he's already got Parkin who is in form and a cult figure at York as well as a capable enough backup in Rankine for the target man role. From what I saw of them last season what York need is a c...

Re: New manager poll

Of the others I wouldn't say no to Ronnie Moore. Been around the block a few times but knows all levels of the game and will have amassed plenty of contacts over the years.

Re: The potential for players to be poached

To be honest I can't see him coming back for too many, Ferguson perhaps?

The problem at York isn't the talent at their disposal it's been a lack of motivation and determination when things aren't going well on the pitch. Something I imagine MG will be able to install much better than Mills.

Re: Martin Gray

There's hardly a rush until the ground improvements are fully funded and completed, as we couldn't go up anyway. It would make sense to just maintain our place in the division away from a relegation battle with any funds available used to ensure that when we're in a position to go up we actually can.

Re: Fenwick gone

So pretty much as he was at York then, a spare part with a habit of standing still and letting the game pass him by.

On the plus side Fewster does what Fenwick tries (or thinks he tries) to do only much, much better. If this is to free up space for him then it's a no-brainer.

Fulltime player with a part time attitude. Easily the best way of describing what I've seen of Brodie. We aren't missing much, trust me.

Brodie probably realises this his last chance saloon, so I'd expect he'll try and impress this afternoon. If he can't do it against Shildon, then he'll probably struggle to get a contract from us.

Brodie has proven quality and is a goal scorer. Providing he is on trial with us I'd be more than happy to see us give him a chance. He's also consistently unfit, has a questionable professionalism off the pitch and is pretty much guaranteed at least a yellow a game for mouthing off to the ref abou...
